Advisory Opinions

Advisory opinions on the qualifications of prospective applicants are not provided by the Board or its staff. If a potential applicant wishes to have a determination made regarding their eligibility, the applicant must submit the appropriate application, accompanying documentation and applicable filing fees. Typical requests for advisory opinions are in regard to admission of foreign attorneys and for potential applicants who have criminal records. Accordingly, refer to the Pennsylvania Bar Admission Rules for eligibility requirements for foreign graduates, and to the Board's information on Character and Fitness for additional information.
